¿What is alopecia or hair loss?

27 August, 2021

Hair loss seems to be a normal occurrence; part of a cycle through which hair fibers regenerate, so it is common to lose between 25 and 60 hairs per day. However, when this situation worsens and there is a daily loss of more than 100 hairs, the cause is probably some type of alopecia hair loss.


Alopecia is a condition that causes hair loss, affecting the scalp but, in some cases, also other parts of the body, such as the eyebrows. There are many types and causes of alopecia hair loss. The most common is androgenic, which affects men to a greater extent, but women are also affected, although it is common for them to hide it with haircuts, hairstyles, makeup, hats or wigs.




Types of alopecia and their symptoms







Hair loss can begin in different ways according to its origin. Sometimes it starts suddenly, affecting only the scalp, while other times it happens in different parts of the body, such as the beard and eyebrows, with itching or pain before it falls out.


Serious diseases and their treatment (such as cancer chemotherapies) can cause thinning and loss of hair throughout the body, although it grows back some time after stopping the drug.
